That is what I mean when I say...
Gender equality and affirmative action has nothing to do with changing the role of women but rather making it possible for them to have leading roles in society without being neglected solely based on their gender. There are no campaigns or laws in Norway or any other country standing in the way of women taking more "traditional" roles if they so wish.
What you say is not real.
Edit: I don't really want to argue about this. I feel everyone should understand this when they live in such a country like Sweden and Norway and have backgrounds from other culture, but clearly i need to explain a little more.
For example... Equality laws in Norway make it much easier for men who have become a father to take the role of traditional women in the family, for example being home with child while women is out working. That forces men to adjust themselves to such a position. But at the same time, women have not got any better position otherwise in the society. example http://www.dagsavisen.no/innenriks/article467226.ece
So its a lose-lose situation for women, child and confusing for men. Yes, men can choose else, but when all the pro's is for those who choose to "become modern dad", and the moral rules of society does not have any strong position, men will naturally choose to change their ways according for economic pro's. So there are things standing in the way for traditional living. Directly forcing people to choose living is not the only way to force people to choose a living. Through laws and customs are another, or economic encouragement. And mind that this is only one small example of a wide network of related issues.
Basically what i am saying and you must respect this, gender equality is not all good. Having a critical voice is also important when you are not happy about way things are going.
